A 23-year old woman from Maryland somehow drove her Audi Q5 SUV off the fourth floor of a Towson parking garage on March 14, landing upside down on the sidewalk. Miraculously, the woman survived, suffering only minor injuries.

Baltimore County Police and Fire identified the driver of the German SUV as Lindsay Taylor Cook. According to the department’s report, Cook was pulling into a parking space on the fourth floor of the parking garage, when for unknown reasons, she went forward and smashed through the concrete barrier.
